Décor is always best when it is timeless. Here are a few of the hippest, interior decor ideas that will work in any style home, from clean and modern to classic traditional. Check it out…
What? Yes you read that correctly. Think about that perfect little black dress. Why is it so classic? Because you can pair it with a wide range of colors and styles and it will remain a classic for years to come. The same holds true for black paint. When used with discretion it can really pull your home together and balance punches of color while working with virtually any style home. It’s a great accent color for interior doors, stair risers, painted furniture, tables and accent pieces.
Mirrors as Artwork
Mirrors are classic, rich and elegant…but they can also be modern, clean-lined and elemental. Either way, mirrors open up the space, reflect color and light, and add a bit of sparkle and glamour to the space. A variety of frame styles can be used together to give you an edgy look. You can find all kinds of great frames inexpensively, from antique and old to new and modern. Paint them all the same color for a classic yet modern look that is a great backdrop for any style home or space.
Using maps for wall décor results in some of the coolest and most popular artwork ideas I have seen. These can be vintage and old and classically framed… or clean and modern with a simple frame. Or you can go frameless and simply hang a map with pins. Generally, they are inexpensive and you can gather them from actual places you’ve visited for a great memento with a personal touch. You can cut out portions of them and put them into smaller frames. Or you can blow up new maps and make huge canvas wrapped, modern pieces. Wallpaper that shows off a beautiful map of the world is a great idea for your kid’s room. Let their imagination wander!
The best part? These ideas are inexpensive and posh. Your dollar will go far and your home will get the look that is on the cover of Elle Décor to boot. It doesn’t get much better than that!
